Dakotas tribes react to fed marijuana decision

The Public Opinion
Standing Rock Chairman Dave Archambault II said that tribe might consider marijuana's cousin, hemp, but the federal government would have to allow interstate transport for it to be a profitable venture. Hemp is used to make a variety of products, including ropes, clothing and lotion.

"We've always thought we had the sovereign right" to grow marijuana, Archambault said. "But once you try to transport it interstate, federal law discourages it. If it makes sense economically, then it might be something tribes would consider."
